Psionics Are Different
Psionics Are Different, Diminished.
- Metamagic / Metapsionic Rods (and Crystal Capacitors / Pearls of Power) will only function with the same type of energy, magic or psionics.
- Antimagic Fields do not affect psionics, Anitpsionic Fields do not affect magic.
- Monsters with SR or PR get the other one, albeit at -10, although some extremely powerful entities like Dragons, Elementals and Outsiders get both at full strength. Half-Fiends pick which one is strong and which is weak.
- Dispel Magic / Dispel Psionics – Each will work against the other type of energy, but at a -4
- Detect Magic / Detect Psionics – Neither will work on the other type of energy.
- Eradicate Invisibility will reveal a magically Invisible character, but his invisibility cannot be dispelled with a dispel psionics power.
- Force screen will protect you from magic missile, and shield will protect you from concussion blast.
- Aura alteration can affect any effect with the [Compulsion] descriptor, be it a power or spell.
- Break enchantment can negate many [Mind-Affecting] powers.
- True strike will negate the miss chance granted by concealing amphora.
